Evaluation

*Average:    3.63
Good parking along the hiway. Nice stairs to walk down to a beautiful sand beach. The only problem is after the dive, you gotta carry all your gear back up what seems to be an eternity of steps. Now don't let that keep you away from this spot as it is a excellent dive. We entered the water and headed to the north side of the bay. We kicked out about 100 yards before dropping down and it was worth the walk and the all the stairs. Great viz 50-60, temp 77-79. Giant turtles were found at the reefs end before wrapping around to Honolua Bay. Schools of bait fish everywhere, several eels tucked away in their caves and some very large unicorn fish. There are several large corals just sitting alone in the sand that make for great sanctuaries for marine life, so be sure to explore those as well. The back side, as it wraps around to Honolua, has a few swim through and lava canyons to explore. Last thing, keep in mind that there is no grassy area to set your gear up on, so take towels or gear up at the car and walk down ready to go in the water. Wash down showers would be nice, but as most beaches here, they are a hit and miss.
